It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The house is filled with the smell of flowering pinks, and the roses have begun to bloom.
The snowman in my linen cupboard came out for an airing the other day, for a dummy run I expect.

My new book arrived from my friends at, and I'm ready to be inspired.

"She who is proficient at separating eggs" was inspired by the little Christmas boxes in the book. She bought supplies and has been coming home from work at lunch time to make Christmas boxes on my kitchen table all week. She doesn't have a kitchen table at her place, so we've seen quite a lot of her this week.

And ... we went shopping the other day and Farmers had their Christmas Shop up and running.
So I bought my first Christmas decoration for this year. She's irresistible don't you think?

Time to really get out in the garden too. The fox gloves have opened their little flowers and the Granny bonnets are in full bloom. The snowball trees are fluffy with new blooms too. I must capture it on camera while the weather is fine. It is my favourite time of year in the garden.
Come Melbourne Cup Day, I really get that Christmas feeling. Not long now blog chics:P
